Playoff failures aside, Tony Romo has been a very productive quarterback over the course of the past seven or eight seasons. But now, at the age of 34 and coming off his second back surgery in as many years, Romo says he has finally become the player he's always wanted to be. Because of that, "I think over the course of the next four or five years, you'll see the best version of me that I've had throughout my career," Romo told The Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Here's another example of how deep the quarterback position is this season: Over the past three seasons, Romo has averaged about 4,300 yards and 30 touchdowns. Yet, he's not even being drafted as a QB1 in 10-team leagues. Yes, back surgeries are always a cause for concern, but Romo has played in 47 of the past 48 games and is in a pass-first offense with one of the game's best wideouts. Plus, Romo practiced on Saturday, so it looks like he has healed up.
The team's brass can say that the Cowboys will run more often this season, but with Scott Linehan calling the plays, do you really believe that?
